It turns out that the overwhelming majority of senior Americans are satisfied with Bushs prescription drug program. That fact--which was news to me--actually presents a challenge to any Democratic effort to reform it. And the Republicans, to say the least, have done a poor job defending what turns out to have been easily defensible. Im not endorsing the program or anything like that, but you really do wonder why this couldnt have been a successful campaign issue. Are the Republicans really so inept that they dont even know how to take credit for their own big spending?
